A like-share-comment infographic – and a word cloud!

Social media data expert Dan Zarrella — who tracked and analyzed more than 1.3 million posts from the 10,000 most-Liked Facebook pages — has released details about which posts get the most likes, shares and comments on Facebook, from post type and length to the best time of day to add updates.

Photos bring in the highest number of engagement across the board, followed by text and video, according to Zarrella. News links bring in the least numbers of likes, shares and comments.

Meanwhile, posts with a high number of self-referential words such as “I” and “me” get more likes — a tactic that doesn’t work well on Twitter.

He’s got a serious infographic on Mashable so go and take a look. Love infographics. I wish I had the data to make one. I`m also going to try some of his  findings? Recommendations?

Someone asked me the other day what I write about on my blog. Lots of stuff. Here’s a picture of what I write the most about. I see the minimum number of comments to make it into the cloud is four in order to be easily viewed… (and you thought I picked the name Anastasia Fussbottom at random…)

Go make a word cloud. I used wordle. Quick easy way to see what you talk about most on your blog, website, promo materials, and if that’s what you want to be talking about, or thought you were talking about.  I’d love someone to run the text for an operating grant through and see what happens…

OMG Why Did He Un-friend Me?

It’s Tuesday of the week-that-never-ends and we’re getting closer!

Another infographic and a bonus article from the G&M on the ins and outs and whys of unfriending. It’s interesting to know why people unfriend, or leave your group or unlike your page so you can use that info wisely. Infographic below, full article from the Huff Post Canada here. Reasons they didn’t include that are big for me include thread-killing (commenting in a thread conversation with something that has nothing to do with anything/dampening the enthusiasm of the thread) and the event-friend (whom I may or may not know IRL,/six degrees, but apparently friended me only for the sake of inviting me to their events).

Two better options on my book are the “hide” feature so you can take a break from unnecessary drama if needed, or avoid Farmville/Bejeweled Blitz/other stupid game,  and the seemingly new “unfollow post” which is useful when the interesting discussion about the subprime mortgage crisis/parliamentary procedure/amazing art show  has turned into a two person argument of the merits of lizards vs ferrets as  house pets and if they’re allowed on the TTC.

Also a timely article on the oops factor of unfriending and the perils in real life.

Keep going my friends!
